Delmore.......his defense improved while his offense regressed....Ruff does not know how to utilize offensive dynamos.

biron's numbers this year were about par with his career stats
at this point in his career i didnt think he performed that far below expectations, if not up to expectations

I'd have to go with Satan. We had a higher skill level on this team with Briere and Drury, and he was well off what we expected from him. The goals and assists he didn't get could have been the difference in us making the playoffs.

Delmore was a gamble from the beginning, and Pyatt didn't improve on last year, but no one really expected a huge improvement from him. Kotalik? Dissappointing, but it seems many players regress in their second year in the league.

Taylor Pyatt.

How about 2 goals in 52 games since November 1st? I love Taylor and I hope that one day he uses his size to his advantage, if this kid ever breaks out he'd give us a HUGE boost.

Satan, I thought he was going to be a point per game player this year.




Kotalik was streaky and this injury thing is a problem but I wouldn't call him that much of a disappointment, he was on pace for about what I expected from him. Pyatt I hoped for more but he didn't underwhelm me nearly as much as Satan did. I remember when Delmore was acquired I said that he'd either have a repeat of his Nashville days (15ish goals, terrible defense) or Ruff would work one of his "miracles" and improve his defense while completely sacrificing offense. Can't disappoint if you expected it.

Gee,I was ragging on Pyatt all year but I was called stupid because Pyatt just needs time to "mature".Pyatt is a bust plain and simple.When freakin MIKA NORONEN SCORES MORE GOALS THEN YOU IN THE YEAR 2004,THERE'S A PROBLEM.


I'm sick of waiting for Pyatt.All he is going to be is a defensive player.His offense is pathetic.

Andy Delmore is by far the biggest disappointment of the season, however Taylor Pyatt is not too far behind.

Biggest disappointment? The continued stalled labor negotiations between the NHLPA/Bob Goodenow and the league/Gary Bettman gets my vote.

Taylor Pyatt. He was pretty much useless all season. May as well have left him in the press box and filled his spot with someone who would put it to good use.
